Friends Of Liverpool

Mamadou Sakho’s display at centre-back against Bordeaux in last night’s draw in the Europa League looks like it has propelled him back into the first team for Sunday’s game at Anfield against Norwich in the Premier League.

The French International was Captain for the night and he gave an assured and commanding display at the back for Manager Brendan Rodgers.


The  under fire boss praised Sakho: “He was certainly outstanding in his performance.
“He knows he’s had to be patient and his attitude has been first-class. We won our first few games, our performance was good, so it was difficult up until the international break for him to play.

“But he’s trained very well and remained very professional, done his extra work on his fitness and you see tonight he has got his rewards for that. “He certainly comes into the reckoning for the weekend (against Norwich).”

So it looks like the error-prone Dejan Lovren will rightly lose his place to a far superior defender, many fans have been demanding this since August and now the penny seems to finally have dropped for Rodgers too.

Sunday can’t come quick enough.
